About the Shops at Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington, has been meticulously preserved by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association since 1858.  Proceeds from the sale of merchandise are used to restore and maintain Mount Vernon for the benefit of the American people and for visitors from all over the world. 

Mount Vernon does not accept any government funding. We rely upon people like you to preserve George Washington’s home and legacy.

The Shops at Mount Vernon offer a series of shopping experiences, with unique gifts, reproductions of Mount Vernon treasures, and toys and games from a bygone era. The Shops at Mount Vernon is located outside the Texas Gate, next to the Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant.
